Miss USA Forgets Capital Of Her Own State


So, this story is kind of embarrassing.

The media has been having a heyday since Miss USA flubbed the state capital of, you know, the state she represented before snagging the Miss USA title.

'What's the capital of Nevada?'
'Uhhh ... oh, my gosh.'
'Maybe she didn't have her coffee yet.'


It all happened during Nia Sanchez's on-air interview with "The Todd Show." The host ended up telling her the answer ... which is Carson City.

The flub added fuel to the fire of a controversy. Some skeptics think 24-year-old California-born Sanchez faked her Nevada residency.

A source told Fox News Sanchez left a "minimum paper trail" to make it appear she lived in Nevada, when she actually still resided in California.

She has since spoken out about the controversy, telling People she'd lived in Nevada since 2012 and has actually lived all over the world.

Amid these accusations, the Miss Universe Organization released a statement saying Sanchez was issued a Nevada driver's license an entire year before she competed.

She should probably brush up on her geography, though.
